Re: Carla/SFZero transpose problem

It wasn't known to me. Sample pitch/transpose seems to me a pretty basic, fundamental feature of any sampler/sample format. To not support it when it exists seems a critical oversight -- I'm sure there will be lots of sample sets that aren't based on full multisampling and hence use pitching where S...

Carla/SFZero transpose problem

I've just discovered today that there's a problem with SFZ support in Carla -- I guess this is a problem with the move to SFZero and that it's SFZero that doesn't support SFZ properly. The last time I used Carla with these SFZ instruments was many, many months ago and everything was working fine. Ba...

Re: Hydrogen: hihat openness

So are you saying that it can handle CC#4 if it's fed to it, but there's no way of programming it within the Hydrogen sequencer? I did at one point manage to feed automation from Ardour into Hydrogen, which was sending MIDI back to the samples loaded in Ardour, but it didn't work reliably. So I gave...

Re: Hydrogen: hihat openness

I find Hydrogen mostly fine for my purposes and I'm programming complex progressive rock drum parts in unusual time signatures and with every single bar different (i.e. programmed individually). My only complaints are not being able to programme CC4 in Hydrogen and the fact that lead/lag (which is v...

Re: Hydrogen: hihat openness

Thanks, I'm aware of how to use Hydrogen but I'm happy using the SFZs and don't want to spend ages loading WAVs into H2 – I'd also lose the round robin capabilities because AFAIK H2 doesn't support that. That also still doesn't address how to programme MIDI CC4 to trigger different samples: SFZ alre...

Re: Hydrogen: hihat openness

It's SFZs that I'm using. I'm used to programming in Hydrogen, been doing it longer than Ardour has had MIDI support and I particularly like the ease of entering velocities compared to Ardour. I have the SFZs loaded in Carla-rack on a channel in Ardour and the two sync'd together whilst I'm programm...

Re: Hydrogen: hihat openness

Thanks but this isn't anything to do with mute groups. The openness of a hihat can be controlled by a particular MIDI CC (I forget the exact number), triggering different samples depending on the CC value. The samples I use have seven or eight degrees from fully closed to fully open: I'm not at my D...

No, I'm British. :lol: Me too, old bean :mrgreen: Kindness doesn't cost a thing (but it's so hard to be nice for some :roll: ). So even the "open source community" seems to have it's selfish egoists. And then those speaking to me requiring "to be open " :roll: so the whole world...

Re: welcome new members more?

Something I absolutely detest when shopping is getting accosted the second I step foot in a shop and asked if I need help or what am I looking for before you've had time to even get orientated. The assistants who do that are generally nowhere to be found when you actually do need help and aren't obs...

Hydrogen: hihat openness

Is there a way to program hihat openness within Hydrogen? At the moment I'm having to do all programming except hihat openness in H2, export a midi file, then automate the hihat in Ardour. It'd be good to be able to do everything within H2 if possible and only import into Ardour once everything (hih...

Re: Carla issues

As I thought, the new version of Carla isn't saving all settings of a plugin's state, though it is changing some. I've filed a bug report. The .gig issue seems to be a Linuxsampler issue. That used to work, but just now when I tried loading .gig files, it crashes every time saying "Could not ge...

Re: Carla issues

I'll double-check tonight/tomorrow, but I recall that it wasn't saving the state even after the first time. That is, immediately after the upgrade the state wasn't changed, I reloaded what was missing, saved and closed the session and I think I reloaded the session and the plugin state still wasn't ...

Carla issues

I've just installed some updates (including Carla) and restarted my machine. In Ardour, Carla-rack is now no longer saving instrument settings of a particular VSTi, which wasn't an issue before. Synaptic tells me that I have 2:1.9.7+git20171129.2v5 installed (though the -bridge-win32 and -win64 and ...

Re: Ardour 5.11 released

Many MIDI regions are blank and it's only on zooming right out that I can see the notes that should be contained within the region are free-floating (i.e. separate, not bounded in a region) much further along the timeline. The regions themselves are at the correct point on the timeline but the notes...
